It has eluded me for over a week but this evening I found my favorite Raptor and it had just caught a Squirrel and was eating it on the ground. Another photographer and I enjoyed photographing it and at one point we were sitting 8' from it. Not the best light but I'm not complaining one bit...for me it was mostly about just being able to sit there and watch it at close range.
1D4, 70-200mm f/4L non IS @ 100mm, 1/250" @ f/4, ISO 1250, handheld, almost full frame.
Taken with a 500mm lens and cropped slightly.
The sun came out for a brief moment.
To give you an idea of what everything looked like the other photographer took some pics with her camera phone. This was before we inched closer to the hawk as it ate the Squirrel.
Sitting 8' from the hawk...it could care less we were there.
